A Homeopathic Substitute for Tums

A Homeopathic Substitute for Tums

My step-son turned five the other day and we had a party for him. My sister-in-law said she couldn’t possibly eat a thing because she had Mexican food right before and had awful indigestion. She then asked me for some Tums.

I have Tums.

Here’s the thing though, other people’s misfortunes when it comes to physical ailments are viewed differently by me. They are viewed as my window of opportunity to demonstrate how well homeopathic remedies work.

So, I got out the Tums, and I said she could have some… in ten minutes.

First, […]

Natural Remedy for Colds

Yesterday, all day, I was feeling  so run down. You know the feeling. I know you do. It’s the feeling you feel when you say, “I’m so achy, I think I’m coming down with something.”  Then the next day, you wake up miserable with a cold or the flu.

For most people, this feeling brings acceptance that they are about to be sick. It used to for me as well, until I started learning about homeopathy .  While all the rest of the world tries to find a cure for the common cold, people who […]

I’m Glad Hyland’s is Smart

So, the FDA didn’t like that the amounts of belladonna in Hyland’s Teething Tablets were inconsistent (they said.) Though, we all know what they didn’t like was that Hyland’s was impeding the sales of Big Pharma’s sales of the traditional (dangerous and toxic) go-to’s for teething like Baby Motrin, Baby Tylenol and Orajel.

Did I say dangerous and toxic? Yes. I did. Because they are. Not because I’m a crazed hippie. I don’t even like hippies, but to each their own. I said it because, it’s well documented that Tylenol and Motrin damage the […]

Homeopathy and Dosage

Homeopathic Doses are often so vague. Sometimes, they will post a dosage schedule on the bottle, and it follows normal “medical style” dosing. The bottles will have a dose that says usually something like, “Take 3-5 pellets under the tongue four times a day.”  This is Americans trying to shove homeopathy into modern medicine’s mold. This is actually less effective than how those of us that live by homeopathy dose.

Let me explain.

The more FREQUENTLY you can expose your body to the remedy the faster it will work. So, taking 5 pellets four […]

Mother Nature, MD.

I love passing along information about natural remedies to anyone who could benefit. It’s one of my favorite things about writing for Everything Birth.  Every once in awhile though, I will get a message like this:

“In response to you telling my friend to put coconut oil on her baby’s skin to act as a natural defense against staph infections, I have to ask you; Why do you presume to know more than the doctors?”

Well…  I don’t.

I don’t presume that I know more than doctors.  I do presume some things though.  Here are the main […]

Why are homeopathic remedies safe for my children and still able to help?

You hear it all the time, from people of every walk of life: Our bodies have the ability to heal themselves. We believe it, for the most part, in theory.

It’s not some imaginary ideal though. That is homeopathy’s goal.

Ideally, as human beings, we would have natural water sources. Our water wouldn’t run through purification systems or city treatment plants; it would course through the veins of the earth. Just before drinking our water, it would run over river beds, rush up against beaches, trickle over every kind of plant. There would be no water […]

Homeopathy for Postpartum Depression


I had it.
It sucked.
I hated myself.
I had childish thoughts.
I wanted to disappear.
I thought I was ugly.
I believed I was worthless.
Things didn’t taste good.
I cried so much.
I doubted myself; I doubted everything.

Postpartum Depression is horrible. I had it for about two months and it started a couple of weeks after my pregnancy. Then, I turned to homeopathy, as I often do, by the request of my mother-in-law. I was too far in my depression and I was convinced it wouldn’t work. Logic told me it could have been PPD, but everything else told me I […]

The Safety of Hyland’s Teething Tablets

I got an e-mail this morning from a customer of mine from before I closed my natural living shop to tend to my three children. This is what she wrote:

“Hopefully you don’t mind but I have to ask you a question, I have been giving (my daughter) Hyland’s Teething Tablets and they are working great…during a conversation with another mother she said her doctor told her to stay away from them because of the Belladonna in them…in researching the internet, I have read that yes Belladonna is harmful and that it is not.”

She […]
